The Belpaese (wonderful place) is one of the largest individual deposits of sensory pleasures of the earth. From art to food, from the magnificent landscapes and varied extravagant fashion, Italy has it all. This is the country that brought us Slow Food, dedicated to the promotion of fresh produce and good traditional cuisine. What began as a local protest against fast food has become a global movement.
With 44 seats, Italy has more UNESCO World Heritage Sites than any other country in the world. His great città of art (art cities), like Rome, Venice and Florence, have been attracting visitors for centuries, and with good reason. Sometimes it seems that the country rests on its laurels art. This is not entirely true. Milan’s financial capital, has created one of the fairs largest and most modern Europe, and is planning a major residential development, CityLife complex in the heart of the city. Venice is probably the city that has been, apparently, at least changed over the decades, but recently it has opened a sleek new bridge over the Grand Canal and a spectacular contemporary art space in the Punta della Dogana.
Along with the art treasures of Italy, you will find plenty to keep you busy in the field. You can ski in the Alps, the Dolomites walking or diving gold coast of Sardinia. Adrenaline junkies can catch fireworks in volatile volcanoes of Sicily. But as much as all this, a trip to Italy is about lifestyle licking. It is idle over coffee at a cafe any street or stop at a long lunch in the Mediterranean sun.
At first glance, Milan (Milano) can appear as one of the models that grace its catwalks: great bone structure (in the form of new and amazing historical architecture), extravagant taste and no obvious soul. But the style of Milan and, yes, the substance beyond the skin.
